UCAS Discovery events are designed to offer students optimism about what lies ahead. We help them feel in control of the next step of their education and make choices clearer, whether they're considering university or college, starting an apprenticeship or planning their future career.
To help students understand their choices, we're running virtual apprenticeship/career-specific events, designed to connect students with employers, and show the benefits and opportunities that come from being an apprentice, as well as financial advice and support available when starting a career.
It's your opportunity to reach students thinking about their options, as early as Year 11
